This solution will not be enacted until the end of the 2008 season. So many of you instant gratifacation subscribers will mock my proposal.
Let me preface this by saying I like Herm Edwards. I think players like Herm and I think people around the league respect his opinion and his ability to evaluate talent. That being said, I don't think Herm is a great coach.
My solution if I was Mr. Hunt would be to fire Carl Peterson at the end of this season and put Herm as the new GM and then woo Bill Cowher out of the pregame show booth to replace Herm as head coach.
I think this plan would be perfect. Cowher and Edwards have worked together before and it was sucessful. Cowher is a championship winning coach that would immediately give the Chiefs the prestige needed to make a key free agent signing or two while I think Edwards is a great player evaluator and would work well to get contracts signed and keep players happy.
Maybe, I'm just suffering from lack of sleep but I think that Cowher as HC and Edwards as GM would give the Chiefs what they need to win.
